Without Further Delay
Join us for the premiere of Desmond Richardson’s Without Further Delay, a virtual dance performance bringing together nine 2021 YoungArts award winners from across the country. Commissioned by YoungArts in partnership with Aon, the performance investigates the current moment by exploring elements of isolation, confinement, communality and perseverance. Choreographer Richardson has been hailed by The New York Times as among the greatest dancers of his time. He is a 1986 YoungArts award winner, the co-artistic director of Complexions Contemporary Ballet and a Tony Award nominee. The music for Without Further Delay was composed by fellow 1980 alumnus and Grammy Award winner Terence Blanchard
Featuring 2021 YoungArts Winners in Dance: Arya Pratap, Brooks Landegger, Bryant Wright, Chelsea Correa, Christian Burse, Courtney McColley, Kelsey Lewis, Luc Simpson and Shalini Basu.
